Boot Camp Public Beta delivered
You've probably heard the news by now: Windows now works with Macs!
On Wednesday, Apple unveiled Boot Camp, public beta software that enables Intel-based Macs to run Windows XP.
Boot Camp is public software that is now in beta and only works with Intel-based machines. In addition, downloading Boot Camp is free.
As elegant as it gets
Boot Camp lets you install Windows XP without moving your Mac data, though you will need to bring your own copy to the table, as Apple Computer does not sell or support Microsoft Windows.(1) Boot Camp will burn a CD of all the required drivers for Windows so you don't have to scrounge around the Internet looking for them.
Run XP natively
Once you’ve completed Boot Camp, simply hold down the option key at startup to choose between Mac OS X and Windows. (That’s the “alt” key for you longtime Windows users.) After starting up, your Mac runs Windows completely natively. Simply restart to come back to Mac.
